This updated model incorporates the new Grand Feel III wooden-key keyboard action, delivering a firmer, faster, and even more grand
piano-like touch feeling. The instrument’s improved SK-EX Rendering multi-channel sound engine features enhanced acoustic piano
samples, with new Virtual Technician parameters to precisely control the attack, release, and sustain characteristics of each piano.
The CA99 retains the high fidelity Onkyo audio processing, powerful amplification, and rich soundboard speaker delivery of its
predecessor, while also introducing new speaker diffuser panels. These specially developed components expand the piano’s tonal
projection in all directions, creating a 360° sound field that allows the CA99 to sound natural for listeners everywhere in the room.
The CA99’s cheekblock touchscreen display features a brand new user interface that is optimised for pianists, while providing easy
access to additional sounds and functions that inspire musical creativity. Kawai’s redesigned communication standard allows this new
user interface to also be accessed as an app for iOS and supported Android devices, with all settings and adjustments recalled
automatically every time the instrument is powered on. Complementing this modern connectivity, the CA99’s Bluetooth Audio feature
now supports the advanced aptX algorithm, allowing high quality audio to be streamed through the piano’s superb amplifier and
speaker system wirelessly, with minimal latency. Finally, as the flagship Concert Artist instrument, the CA99 boasts a stunning new
appearance, adopting a contemporary upright piano-inspired cabinet design, which incorporates Kawai’s Soft Fall closing mechanism.
